Hello. Is it me you're looking for?

Fueled by passion and curiosity.

Bacon bleu burgers, spicy crab rolls, glazed donuts, pepperoni pizza, Italian hoagies, wasabi peas. We know what you’re thinking: our favorite foods have little impact on our performance, but we like to pay attention to details. And that dedication to our employees is a perfect example of how you can expect to be treated.
A talented team of outside-the-box thinkers, certified marketing professionals and downright friendly people are here to move your company forward. Led by Rip and Adam Muhlenhaupt, we interact in a unique way with our clients: we ideate together, we ask questions, we create strategies, we drive results.


We exist to advance our clients’ successes - and to positively impact everyone’s futures - by fully committing our individual talents in all the best ways we can imagine, together.

We will not stop questioning and seeking improvement. Continue to advance and hone our talents and skills. Never stop exploring because explorers are never lost.

Angela Michael
Director, Marketing Strategies
“I like nonsense; it wakes up the brain cells.” - Dr. Seuss

Angela lives in a whimsical world of literal logic. When she writes, it’s with research, passion and a desire to achieve greatness. But writing is a minuscule portion of her overly full life as she goes on regular adventures with her family, exploring the world and learning as many new things as possible.​

Todd Staples
Director, Revenue Optimization
“Don't bunt. Aim out of the ball park. Aim for the company of immortals.” - David Ogilvy

His scientific approach to revenue growth and relentless focus on ROI has created multi-million dollar increases in sales and double-digit increases in conversion rate for e-commerce, SAAS, and service businesses of all sizes. Unrelated to conversion rate improvements, his determination and mental toughness earned him the title of "Grand Champion" on the 2004 TV show Fear Factor. Making use of his $50k prize winnings, Todd launched his first e-commerce business—which he grew to 7-figures, then sold for a profit. A passionate teacher and mentor, Todd enjoys bringing new ideas and perspectives to the M+Co team.

➸ Do the Homework

We will empathize with our clients and understand the growth processes we support and drive forward.

Tara M. Siri
Director, Creative Programs
"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." - Maya Angelou

Tara began working in the family business – yes, she’s the daughter of a Muhlenhaupt – at a very young age answering telephones, sealing envelopes and soaking in everything involved in providing unparalleled customer service. She went on to study marketing communications and so has brought valuable book-learning to her role as well. While she is primarily responsible for working alongside Rip in the development of the coolest creative programs for our clients (events conception and production, employer branding, team building and much more), with her unmatched eye for detail, we rely on Tara to guarantee optimal quality control to ensure all deliverables meet our very highest standards.​

➸ Value Driven

We are driven to provide immense value to our clients, and to each other.

From social media advertising to content syndication, Kevin’s goal is to maximize the ROI for our clients. Bringing various experiences in both small business as well as digital agencies, he has proven himself a key piece to all successful endeavors here. Despite Kevin being the only Redskins fan in the office, we like the guy.

Veronica Llamas
“Only those who attempt the absurd, will achieve the impossible” - M.C. Escher

Veronica is an award-winning designer who dreams in balanced white spaces and thinks in key commands (who wouldn't want to Command+Z after eating a dozen donuts?). For her, design is a way of life and, as Kanye West said, “sometimes [we] get emotional over fonts”. She exercises her passion at M+Co by bringing to life innovative and creative ideas for our diverse client portfolio.

Jayne is a lifelong writer, ceramic potter, and Philly transplant. She brings a variety of writing experience to M+Co, ranging from blog, article and content writing to poetry and short fiction. Most of her days are spent scribbling on notepads and sipping coffee, regardless of whether she’s at home or at the office.

Kelly Collins
Digital Content Manager
“To have success you need three things: a wishbone, a backbone and a funny bone.” - Reba McEntire

Kelly's career background includes media management, marketing, sales and creative writing. When not busy being a jack of all trades, Kelly enjoys spending time outdoors and always looking for the newest food trends to try. Her persistence and curiosity help her bring fresh ideas to the team at M + Co. A native of Greater Philadelphia, Kelly understands the importance of staying connected to the community through networking and volunteer initiatives. She also understands that coming to the office on a Monday morning with a smile on after the Phillies and Eagles have both lost is a true show of strength.

Meghan Longo
Administration Manager
“You Only Live Once but if you do it right, once is enough.” - Mae West

Meghan supports the leadership of the company by handling all administrative tasks. She’s also everyone's favorite person – ensuring payroll gets submitted and all credit cards get paid. You know how it is.

Jay has worked for Comcast SportsNet, NFL Films, the USGA (and more) shooting and editing everything from weddings to feature-length documentaries. He was awarded a Mid-Atlantic Regional Emmy for his work on the 2012 documentary "Almost Answered" which covered our very own Philadelphia 76ers unforgettable run to the 2001 NBA Finals.
